Forum: movies Subject: Re: Unable to view movies as they should be

are you talking about jerking happening, BTW,
in the /details/ page on our site
OR when you download them to your computer
and try to watch them with QuickTime?

if it's on the /details/ page, and you are either on a slow connection or very far from us 8-) you could try "click to play", watch it start buffering (progress bar), hit stop, and let it buffer until a lot of the video is loaded and then try play/resume to see if that's it.

the autobuffering will only play the video until its buffer runs out. then it has to pause and download more video before it can play....

Dear Tracey,

Thank you for your kind reply. I had some difficulty opening the site (address) with your message (copied below), which is one reason why I'm so late in replying to you.

The jerking and sound stops occur after I've opened the film and it appears on the screen. QuickTime gives me audio only. I can't download the software to get Ogg Video. Apparently, there is not enough room on my Mac 0S10 (Panther). Only Windows will bring blurred images to the screen, even after it has stopped buffering, and the jerking, sound stop continue.

There are certain films where I can "click to play," but the results are the same. Comcast maintenance soon will do a sweep of our neighborhood to correct problems that we and our neighbors have been having with Comcast phone, cable TV, and internet. Maybe that will improve things. My parents in Seattle also are on Comcast, and I have no problem viewing films on their Dell which is a few years newer than my iMac.

I know that IA has made some changes, and I fear that my iMac maybe just can't cut it anymore. Times being what they are, I can't really afford to replace it. Fortunately, there is no problem with IA's Old Time Radio, and I joyfully turn to it every night before bedtime to enjoy the programs of my childhood and youth ("Suspense," "The Whistler") and others that predate it, such as the Jack Benny and Fred Allen programs of the '30s and '40s. I miss listening to "The Shadow," but evidently IA ran into some copyright problems.

I am so grateful and am now a registered IA user. One of these days, I'll send a donation, albeit modest, to express my appreciation of this invaluable service of which you are a part.

Again, thank you for writing.

Yours,

John McClelland
Longview, WA
